Hürlimann H 488

The "Hürli" is back!

Every installment of the Farming Simulator has seen a steady increase in the number of brands, vehicles, and equipment being added to the base game machinery roster.

But there are also several models that didn’t make the cut. The Hürlimann H 488 tractor is one of those. But if you really enjoyed the little green tractor in both FS15 and FS17, I have good news for you. Because the “Hürli” is back! As a mod.

Hürlimann H 488 by Giants

It’s not very strong. It’s not – if I’m being brutally honest – particularly nice to look at. Still, it has an indescribable kind of charisma. The Hürlimann H 488 has charm. I think that is the best way to put.

That’s why it’s nice to see that Giants has put some effort into bringing the tractor to Farming Simulator 19 as a mod. A well-deserved comeback, if you ask me. After all, it was the Hürlimann that helped thousands upon thousands of players getting a flying start as digital farmers back in FS15.

(Hürlimann H 488 was in the starting equipment line-up when players entered Bjornholm or Westbridge Hills for the first time in Farming Simulator 19.)

It’s a fun tractor to drive. I guess it would do well as a farm tracor on most FS19 farms. One thing is for sure. The H 488 has never looked as good as this.
